    We're getting Minakov on Fight Pass, hopefully that's the first step in getting him in the UFC.

    Awesome, great to see two new faces, a lot of their new HW signings haven't really panned out too great.

    Yep, that fight is September 25th and it's the first to air on Fight Pass for the Russian Fight Nights promotion.

    Isn't Luiz Henrique a Light Heavyweight ? Ngannout is a big heavyweight so this is a odd match up.

    according to this site, henrique is a LHW, is 0 feet tall and lost by KO to that big hairy Avar dude who did the failed spinning shit attempt on the last Sweden card........

    I think this will end up being more of a showcase for Ngannou who seems promising.

    I'd love to see N'gannou go far, HW needs a big brutal finisher. JDS used to be that guy, but then Cain happened.

    Is Minakov out of his Bellator contract?

    I also thought Henrique looked small when I looked up pics of him. Looks like he's being fed to Ngannou then will drop down to 205lbs.

    I like the fact that they're going out and getting new heavyweight talent. It's a bit odd that they're putting two newcomers against each other, but then again, it maybe sort of a TUF "get into the house" fight - you have one chance to show whether you've got what it takes.

    Hopefully n'gannou wins he's a big legit heavyweight and henrique is just a lhw/mw basic brazillian fighter.
